Are we really talking about the same thing.. If I look e.g. to 
/usr/local/share/mythtv/themes/Titivillus-OSD/ I see plenty of .png 
files and only one XML file.

When looking into this file, I can see following block:

   <container name="menu">
     <listtreemenu name="menu">
       <gradient type="unselected" start="#505050" end="#000000" 
       <gradient type="selected" start="#5238CA" end="#343898" alpha="255">
       <fcnfont name="infofont" function="active"></fcnfont>
       <fcnfont name="infofontgray" function="inactive"></fcnfont>

I can see that various sizes etc. can be configured. But what I'm 
looking is how to e.g. hide certain menu items from the OSD menu. For 
example, I don't ever use Teletext Captions so I'd like to get rid of 
that OSD menu item, same goes for the Manual Zoom mode etc. So.. is 
there a way to edit e.g. above XML file to achieve this or is this 
something that cannot be done?
